diy dual front return pipes

this is my latest diy project, i would have taken pics while i was building it but i always get in a rush and dont like to stop to take pics, but this is what i did ran 1/2 cpvc under each center brace of my 125 at the front of the tank i put in a tee and a 45 on the ends of the tee to make it flow out. ran it back to a barb tee and connected it to my hose coming from my canister filter. here are pics to explane it better, ill get more pics of it when i do a water change.

this is looking in through the front of the tank at the returns

Nice. Can you take a front-of-tank shot so we can see how much of the cpvc is visible from the front?
